This a top lunch spot for us when staying in Block Island. Good chowder and tasty sandwiches and salads. The service is decent as well. You can often watch surfers and surf lessons across the street at "Kid Beach". Very relaxing spot.

I liked the atmosphere a lot but the food was so so. It might have been because we were a late dinner seating but I would have loved a little more. The stuffed clams dos rock.

The restaurant is right across from the beach. We were looking for a cool place to eat and air conditioning is hard to find on Block. We asked to sit in a cool spot as we were all overheated from shopping and they put us...More
